Boasting cobblestones from London, leaded windows, exposed beams and trusses, seven fireplaces from English and French castles, and a fountain pulled from Roman aqueducts, it’s hard to imagine this mega property isn’t located high atop a mountain in Europe. Au contraire. This eye-popping estate can be found in tony Pebble Beach.

Purchased in the 1990s by Ron Wright, a jazz guitarist and real-estate investor, and his wife, Madeline, the couple “renovated an existing property and rebuilt it with a lot of ‘blood, sweat and tears,’” according to Wall Street Journal. Completed in 2004, the French and English Tudor-style home is a special kind of place for a special kind of buyer.

“Mr. Wright, 59, previously tried to sell the property off-market for an undisclosed price, but this is the first time it has been formally listed for sale,” notes WSJ. “He said the home is not exactly his style and he wants to move on to something different.”

Featuring four beds, four and a half baths, and 7,403 square feet, 3208 17 Mile Drive brings to mind storybook homes but on a much larger scale. The main property consists of three bedrooms, while a detached guest house comes with one bedroom, one bath, and a full kitchen.

Asking is $40 million making it the most expensive property in Pebble Beach right now.
